Small Victories

As you read this, I won that post. What do I mean, you ask? Well, I believe life is about winning. Whether it’s a game, money, fame, a heart… we all want to succeed.

But all these goals we think about on a daily basis are the mid/long term ones. We ignore the small ones, like eating, being at work on time, buying the groceries, or even taking a shower. These are unconscious, or routine, goals.

And every time we complete these goals, we win. You’re hungry, you cook, you eat, you’re not hungry anymore, you won. That simple.

Think about all the little goals you’ve accomplished today, and compare that to the things you failed. I bet you had more victories than losses.

I know this is a candid way of seeing things. But seeing victories in even the small tasks nurtures a positive mindset. It’s also fun. And I don’t know about you, but I like having fun. And I just won that post. Boom!
